Position nine
Scrumhalf
Peter Stringer
The player responsible for feeding the ball won by the forwards to the backs, or recycling the ball in loose play.

Usually one of the smallest players in the side with the best handling skills.

Generally more robust and aggressive than a fly half because he is more prone to tangling with the opposition's forwards.
